LA PART DE LA FEMME DANS LA PAIX

La paix commence avec soi même, et généralement on donne ce qu’on a, si une femme n’a pas de paix dans son cœur elle ne peut pas en donner, mais l’expérience montre que les femmes retrouvent la paix intérieure plus rapidement que les hommes il est clairement démontré que les conflits touchent les femmes et les hommes différemment. Il faut aider les femmes à retrouver cette paix intérieure pour qu’elles soient en mesure de la donner aux autres.
Comment mieux impliquer les femmes au processus de paix ? Parmi la panoplie de solutions possibles nous avons formulé une recommandation en SIX points que voici :

1. Appuyer la participation des femmes aux négociations de paix car les femmes rencontrent beaucoup d'opposition quand il s'agit de participer aux négociations de paix officielles.
2. Accroître la participation des femmes aux règlements des conflits et à l'élaboration des décisions; notamment en mettant les femmes dans des postes de décisionnaires liés aux négociations de paix et à la réconciliation nationale.
3. Former les femmes aux techniques de négociation
4. Une éducation plus juste et meilleure pour les filles : Le renforcement des capacités des filles par l’éducation est une nécessité. Il conviendrait de mettre en place des politiques leur permettant de fréquenter l’enseignement secondaire en plus grand nombre et de poursuivre leurs études jusqu’à leur terme. À cela devraient s’ajouter des programmes leur donnant les moyens et la confiance nécessaires pour leur permettre de propager une culture de la paix
5. Favoriser le développement d’environnements sociaux, politiques et culturels qui soutiennent les efforts des femmes en matière de paix et permettent de garantir des acquis durables en faveur de l’égalité des genres.
6. Renforcer le pouvoir économique des femmes en élargissant les possibilités qu'elles ont d'accéder au crédit et aux prêts, à des postes décisionnels, à la gestion des affaires publiques et à l'information
les organisations de femmes s’avèrent être des lieux privilégiés offrant des possibilités et des occasions d’acquérir et de développer les compétences, les connaissances et les ressources. Ces organisations se mobilisent, agissent auprès des pouvoirs publics et mènent des campagnes contre la violence, les lois injustes et oppressives, la pauvreté et la maltraitance familiale. Ces activités contribuent considérablement à la paix. Grâce à elles, les femmes affirment fermement leur volonté de lutter contre les guerres et les violences de toutes sortes et proposent des solution
Les femmes sont en général quelque peu nostalgiques du passé. Elles ont le
sentiment que les systèmes éducatifs traditionnels ont besoin d’être améliorés et
renforcés pour pouvoir répondre aux problèmes actuels posés par la paix et la
sécurité.
Selon elles, les difficultés économiques quotidiennes créent un contexte
dans lequel les conflits et les affrontements deviennent naturels. La plupart des
femmes pensent que la paix consiste avant tout à disposer d’assez de nourriture
et à pouvoir vivre en sécurité. Les femmes ont toujours été « chargées de mettre
de la nourriture sur la table », mais elles pensent que les hommes devraient faire
preuve de plus de responsabilité. Les femmes déclarent que : « Certains hommes estiment
que leur seule responsabilité est de faire des enfants, mais ils ne se soucient
pas de savoir si ces enfants mangent ou non ».
Ainsi, alors que les femmes continuent à s’occuper de leur foyer, les
Hommes devraient « rentrer chez eux pour ne plus traîner dans les bars » et se
Charger de subvenir aux besoins de leur famille. Aux yeux des femmes, les bars
Sont un lieu où les hommes fuient leur devoir de subvenir aux besoins de leur
Famille .

THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN PEACE

Peace begins within oneself, and generally we give that which we have, if a woman does not have peace in her heart then she can not give it, but experience shows that women find inner peace sooner than men. It is clear that conflicts affect women and men differently. Women need to be assisted in finding inner peace so that they will be enabled to give it to others. How to better involve women in the peace process ? Among the range of possible solutions we made a recommendation in SIX points here :

1 . Support the participation of women in peace negotiations because women face heavy opposition when it comes to participating in formal peace negotiations.
2 . Increase the participation of women in conflict resolution and in the development of decisions; notably by placing women in decision-making positions related to peace negotiations and national reconciliation.
3 . Train women in negotiating techniques
4 . A fairer and better education for girls: The reinforcement of the capacity of girls through education is a necessity. Policies enabling them to attend secondary school in greater numbers and to pursue their studies to completion should be put in place. To this should be added programs that provide them the means and confidence to propagate a culture of peace
5 . Promote the development of the social environment, political and cultural that would support women's efforts for peace and help ensure lasting gains for gender equality .
6 . Economic empowerment of women by expanding their opportunities to access credit and loans, to decision-making positions, to the management of public affairs and information. Women's organizations are proving to be ideal places for providing possibilities and opportunities to acquire and develop the necessary skills, knowledge and resources. These organizations are mobilizing, acting with governments and campaigning against violence, unjust and oppressive laws, poverty and family abuse. These activities contribute significantly to peace. Thanks to them, women strongly affirm their commitment to the fight against war and violence of all kinds and offer solutions.
Women are generally somewhat nostalgic for the past. They have the feeling that traditional education systems need to be improved and strengthened to meet current problems of peace and security. According to them, the daily economic difficulties create a context in which conflicts and confrontations become natural. Most
women believe that peace is above all the ability to have enough food and to live in safety. Women have always been " charged to put food on the table, " but they think men should show more responsibility. Women report that : "Some men feel that their only responsibility is to conceive children, but they do not care whether these children eat or not."Thus, while women continue to take care of their home, men should "go home to stop hanging out in bars" and take it upon themselves to support their families. From the perspective of women, bars are a place where men flee their duty to support their Family.

Bien dit! Il faut avoir

Bien dit! Il faut avoir l'esprit sains pour être un instrument de paix. Je pense aussi que les femmes sont naturellement plus prête, comparer aux hommes, a adopter un rôle de médiateur dans la vie privé et publique. A travers l'éducation et le soutien de divers organisations on peut espérer que les femme du RDC pourront adopter un tel rôle. Bon courage et bonne chance.

Salut mon ami Justin, merci

Salut mon ami Justin, merci pour le temps que vous vous êtes donné pour lire et traduire mon journal en fin de le rendre plus compréhensif aux autre et d'y apporté un commentaire,alors ici chez nous en R D Congo la plupart des
femmes pensent que la paix consiste avant tout à disposer d’assez de nourriture
et à pouvoir vivre en sécurité. Les femmes ont toujours été « chargées de mettre
de la nourriture sur la table », mais elles pensent que les hommes devraient faire
preuve de plus de responsabilité. Les femmes déclarent que : « Certains homme estiment
que leur seule responsabilité est de faire des enfants, mais ils ne se soucient
pas de savoir si ces enfants mangent ou non ».

Encore une fois merci.
